    This William Roberts was actually the 4th generation of William Roberts in his family line. His father was also named William Roberts, born abt. 1693 in Connecticut and married to Mary Vaughn. His grandfather was also named William Roberts and he was born before Sep. 4, 1664 in Milford, New Haven, CT. (husband of Elizabeth Lobdell). William's great grandfather was also named William Roberts and he was born abt. 1617 in Hertfordshire, England (wife Johanna).

    We are told that this William Roberts (William the 4th) was married to Isabel Graham, daughter of Nathaniel Graham and Margaret Codry, on Feb.14,1767, in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. However there do not appear to be any marriage records that survived for that time and place (according to the Somerset County, PA. GenWeb website). So if that is correct the date and place must have come from family records (family Bibles).

    Adding to the doubt on this date for their marriage is the fact that their first born child, Mary Roberts, was born in September 1768, in Rowan County, North Carolina.

    Their second known child, Henry Graham Roberts, was born in Sullivan County, Tennessee in May of 1773. And their next six known children were all born there in Sullivan County, Tennessee as well (Rachel b. July 1775, Margaret b. Dec. 1777, David b. Jan. 1780, William the 5th b. July 1782, John b. Oct. 1784, and Graham b. March 1787). Their youngest known child, Isabella, was born in Feb. 1790, in Hawkins County, TN.
